I’m starting a new monthly post as of now, about all the things that have caught my beady eyes, that I’ve used and loved, all collated here in a nicely packaged up post.
Last month I picked up a Clinique Chubby Stick and have been using it pretty much every day since. Despite it’s name, which, let’s face it, sounds a bit… porny, it’s rather excellent, and available in tons of colours, which makes it accessible to everyone. And I do think everyone should have one.
Whilst the ‘Lympics were on, I caught the bug in a big way. I watched sport every day, and if you know me at all, you’ll know watching sport is something I just don’t do. Unless it’s the gymnastics, I do love to watch a ripped man in ski pants on a pommel horse. I got right into the track cycling, found a new heroine, and promptly went to Halfords and came back with a rather schwing new bike. Her name is Brooke, she’s purple, sparkly, and has a white saddle and more gears than I’ll ever use (mainly because I don’t know how). She’s light as a feather and is SO nice to ride. I am going to have thighs of STEEL in no time flat. If you are in the market for a new bike, check out Vicky Pendleton’s range at Halfords, they are girly and right gorgeous.
My sister lent me her Hunger Games books, and I know I am bit late to the soiree with this one, but I couldn’t put them down. Suzanne Collins really draws the reader in, and I felt more than a bit scared whilst reading. It’s a thrilling trilogy I just couldn’t stop reading. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait for the DVD release and found a site to stream the film from. The casting was great, and it was a good adaptation, but they did miss out a lot of the backstory.
Finally, I picked up some Sally Hansen Maximum Growth nail treatment whilst I was in Boots the other day. I hate my fingernails looking shite, and they really have done recently. You use it like a nail varnish and paint a new coat on every day for a week, over the top of the old coats. After a week, remove it all and allow your nails to breathe for a day or so before starting again. No more peely, weak nails. BOOM! It seems to work so far, and is shiny and incredibly quick drying. Well worth £4!
